Badrinath Ki Dulhania had a good first weekend of 42 crore nett apprx even though business was affected by pre Holi and the start of exams. The film grew very well on Saturday but on Sunday some theatres did not start screenings till evening due to Holi and this limited the growth on Sunday. This should be recovered over the next couple of days. The best business has come in Delhi / UP but this market could have been even better were it not for some of these factors. The film has not out performed in the North as it should have but it should after Holi and in the long run. Mumbai has done very well for a North based film. The business of Badrinath Ki Dulhania Hindi) till date is as follows.
Friday - 12,00,00,000
Saturday - 14,25,00,000
Sunday - 15,75,00,000
TOTAL - 42,00,00,000 apprx
The opening is the third best of the year after Raees (59.48 crore) and Jolly LLB 2 (47.59 crore) and has easily beaten far bigger films like Kaabil (30.65 crore) and Rangoon (14.43 crore) though these films were poor at the box office so is probably not right to compare a successful film with them.
The first film in the series Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania released in 2014 grossed 32.97 crore nett so its a healthy 25% improvement on that film and this improvement should be higher over the film. The costs are pretty low for the film so it is a success just due to the weekend business but eventually a film has to sustain and how well this can sustain will be known on Tuesday and Wednesday.
